Monster Hunter Stories 2 Sold One Million Copies

It’s a good year to be Capcom, if game sales are concerned. Not content with the millions sold from Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise, Capcom is experiencing a windfall from its RPG title Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.

The titular spin-off which involves monster riding, monster collecting, and tag-team turn-based combat up the wazoo, has shipped and sold one million units worldwide. Keep in mind that these are both digital sales of both the PC and Nintendo Switch versions of the game.

This shouldn’t come off as a surprise: Monster Hunter Stories 2 is a lovely RPG spin-off that takes the same exploration and trek-filled Monster Hunter gameplay, but replaces the “hunt one monster to win” mechanic with “fight a dozen of them plus one major boss in turn-based RPG fashion” and “monster collecting and party-assembling” mechanics that make titles like Pokémon a hit.

Here’s the press release and also some celebratory artwork.

“The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. Beginning with the first title in 2004, the series established a new genre in which players cooperate to hunt ferocious monsters with their friends and has since grown into a global phenomenon with cumulative sales of the series exceeding 72 million units shipped as of March 31, 2021.

The new Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is the second role-playing game based on the world of the Monster Hunter series. In the game, players assume the role of the protagonist, the grandchild of the legendary Monster Rider Red, who meets a Wyverian girl named Ena before taking off on a grand adventure revolving around the Wings of Ruin.

In addition to featuring a host of popular monsters from past titles in the franchise and an engaging battle system, the series’ world is expanded with a new focus on Monster Riders. In addition, the title garnered positive reception following a demo version released prior to launch, leading global shipments to exceed one million units.”
